1957 Porsche 356 BECK

This car gets more attention than brand new Porsche GT3's. Lots of fun to drive, especially at night as it is an excellent star gazer. It is truly an amazing experience driving 60+ mph with the top down and not hearing anything but the wind (you can literally hear crickets at stop signs). I built it for my father for his 65th birthday. Unfortunately, he is having difficulty operating the manual transmission (oops) and its only getting harder to get in and out of the car. Car has been taken up to 90mph. It has a range of 70-120 miles depending on how you break up the trip (range can be extended if you were to swap transmission to a taller gear set). Also important to know, the charger works at a rate of 10% of total SOC (state of charge) per hour of charge. Paint is in good condition, but there are a couple minor chips from driving so low to the ground.
